New Job!

This is going to be a 'no pictures' kind of post! Sorry! I think it's my first one in a long time, but I don't have anything great really to show you....

Just tell you!

I got a new job!!

Well, 5 to be exact.

Sort of.

Pottery Studio, Dad's RV park, Hospital,  biomedical waste disposal, and feed store.

Hospital job! Yay!

Well, I thought of one picture I could share! :)
My new badge!

I am one of our local hospital's newest PCTs. AKA, Patient care tech or Nurses Assistant. I applied in the beginning of February, got an interview the day after I applied, and found out I got the job 4 days after I interviewed. It was a blessing for me to get this job! A) money B) hospital experience C) I'll be able to transfer out to an RN position whenever I finish school!

I will be taking vitals and doing patient care in this job. It is 90% customer service. I am a big part of a happy patients!

I finished orientation today and will start my first shift Wednesday at 6:38 am!
I also made a new friend during orientation! A girl that is a PCT as well that will be working on a different floor, but we have a lot in common! She is only less than a month younger than me and she loves animals and painting! (I should get back into painting... if I had the time!) She acutally came and rode horses with me today. Of course she loved it! She is from another state so she doesn't have many friends here yet... of course me being who I am, I immediately told her about all the yummy food around here and told her to come over or call or text whenever she wanted. I'm sure I'll be seeing a lot more of her around!

About the other jobs. I still work at the pottery studio that I worked at 2 years ago. I am more of a fill in girl than an all the time girl.
I may be looking into taking a job driving a van picking up biomedical wastes. The guy that owns the company stays at the RV park and was telling dad he needed help, so I was volunteered and I think it would be pretty fun! It's supposed to pay well.
Then the feed store... I got a call yesterday from the manager saying the owner told her to call me to see if I wanted to work for them. I told them I would have to talk to my dad since one of the days they wanted me to work is one of the days I work for him! We'll see!!

So, I have 3 jobs. Maybe 4. Maybe 5. I hope not 5. haha! Probably just 4. Doubt I will end up doing the biomedical thing!

So that is where I stand on my multitude of jobs. February must be my 'lucky month'!

Blog Button!

Introducing my blog button! 

I made it myself.

Hence the cartoon child. Ha!

I'm going to get Josh to make me a sophisticated one.

Layers and all that photoshop talk confuses me.

Until then... Grab this one!! :)

I'll keep this one up as well.

What do you think?

Pet Photography

Ever since my Mema died, I have been so upset of not having photos of us together. I wish I would have taken more photos with her and I wish I had MORE photos of her.

This is what made me decide that I need more photos of everything. My family, my boyfriend, and my animals. And then I decided I need to get an external hard drive.

Hey, there really isn't anyone taking pictures of pets around this town. Hey, I think that might be a good idea.

I pondered on it for three or four months... I fiddled around taking some pictures and I finally decided to just post some. Maybe people will ask for it, maybe people won't. Even if I don't take pictures of other people's pets... I can enjoy taking pictures of my own! I have plenty to do that with! I even asked Jaclyn if she wouldn't mind taking pictures of me and my horses. Just so I can have them. I would do the same for her with any of her pets. I only have one photo of me and my horse Scout and it is in a frame in my room and it has never been replaced as all the other photos have. I hold it very dear to me (even though it is a horrible picture of me! one of those self timer pictures!). If I don't have pictures with them, at least have pictures of them.

All I do is take photos of my animals anyways, why not do it for others?!

So enjoy!

Silly boy!

 Today after a nice relaxing ride on Flint... I was taking pictures of my horse because I think he is the cutest horse in the world. 

This precious thing always acts like the world is coming to an end and that I have run him too hard. He shows this by yawning 20 times in a row. Then making a moaning sound. 

I was steady trying to get a picture of him yawning... but I never really succeed. This is all I got.

But I kept on taking pictures anyways. He is SO. Dang. Cute!
How could you not love a face that cute?

Then the clever horse decided to do a little shake... the whole body shake.
and shook his saddle right off! He proceeded to turn around making sure the deed was done.
Then he looked at me as if he was saying can I please go get in my pasture now?!

I didn't get a picture of that look cause I was laughing so hard!

What a Cutie. :)

My First Recipe in..3..2..1..

I can't be related to my sisters and my mom without putting recipes on my blog. Who agrees? I do!

3-2-1 Cake.

I have never heard of this... until today.

One of our precious RVers staying here at my family's RV park (which I work at) brought me two little delicious cakes. They were moist and yummy.

She said it is called the 3-2-1 cake. 

She said you use one box of angel food cake mix and one box or regular cake mix of any flavor. She used the confetti white cake for mine!

Mix the two cake mixes in a gallon ziplock bag and make sure all the lumps are out. This will keep as long as you want it!

You take 3 tablespoons of the cake mix, 2 tablespoons of water, mix it in a small microwavable bowl and microwave it for 1 minute. 3-2-1. 

Ideally you want a 'cupcake' shaped bowl. Because if you just put it in a cereal bowl... well, you'll have a cereal bowl shaped cake. Flat and sad. 

This would be great for kids! Aunt Cheryl! :)

I don't know if any of you have ever heard of it, but I like it!

Now, if you want some real recipes go to my sister's blog, this sister's blog or... The Pioneer Woman! 

I think my family will be ashamed that my first recipe was a box cake recipe. Box cake is banned from our household!
